Virtual learning is becoming the norm for a lot of people and is easily accessible regardless of location. That’s one of the reasons why we’re hosting the ODSC East 2020 Virtual Conference this April 14-17 so anyone can learn data science online.

This 100%-virtual event will contain the same breadth and depth of content and engagement that you can experience at one of our in-person events. Here are a few reasons why virtual training might be right for you:

Why Online Virtual Training?

In these trying times, it’s important to look ahead. The field of data science continues to expand and the demand for individuals with expertise in data, machine learning, and deep learning will continue to grow.

ODSC is hosting our first ever Virtual Conference and live training will be one of the most important aspects of the event. The conference will feature all of the same things you’d get at an in-person event: trainings, networking, career advice, and more.

World-Renowned Speakers & Trainers

This year, we have speakers representing some of the most impactful data science teams in the world, including Google, Microsoft, MIT, Facebook, Amazon, IBM, NVIDIA, and more.

Highlighted Training Sessions

With 55 training sessions, 75 workshops, and over 400 hours of original content, there’s something for everyone. Here are a few talks that we’re excited about:

Training Format

What’s online training like?

It’s Modular

All training sessions are modular, meaning everything is structured in an easy-to-follow format designed to balance instruction, hands-on training, and then a Q&A session. This ensures that you get the information you need, followed by a practice run and actual implementation of the new code, then a chance to ask questions related to what you just learned. 

It’s in the Cloud

By using Jupyter Notebook and Codelab, most training sessions will be on open-source, cloud-based documents to host and share code, visualizations, text, and other important information needed for your training session.

It’s Live

All of these sessions are in real-time, and function as if you’re at a conference in-person. The presenter will walk through everything right then and there.

Each session will have their own Slack channel, too, meant for real-time discussion with other participants and for the Q&A part of each module.

It’s easy to switch between tracks, too. Everything will be viewed in an easy-to-use dashboard, so it’s simple to switch between focus areas. Halfway through the current machine learning session but want to learn more about NLP? You can easily switch to that one and catch the first half on-demand.

It’s On-Demand

On-demand videos will be made available for each session. Need to rewatch one that you participated in live? Had to choose between two talks that you were interested in? These videos will be available for you immediately. The module format will make it easy for you to follow, especially if you only need to refresh your memory for one section of a session.

Materials are all online

Everything will be right there for you in each session. While it’s recommended that you set up as much as possible before each session, such as downloading required programs and familiarizing yourself a bit with the topic, all session materials will be made available to you right there. Any subsequent materials (such as something mentioned in a Q&A session) can be shared via the Slack channel, too.

If virtual training sounds good to you, and you’re ready to learn about the latest topics, frameworks, and tools in data science, then register now for the ODSC East 2020 Virtual Conference this April 14-17. Tickets are 20% off for a limited time, so be sure to grab your ticket now before it’s too late!
